Brandstrom Drills a Draw to Survive

• Nível 15: Blinds 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante
Simon Brandstrom

After Simon Brandstrom raised to 8,000 in middle position, Peter Jaksland three-bet to 21,000 from the cutoff.

Brandstrom called, leaving himself less than 100,000 behind for the {7-Spades}{9-Spades}{10-Clubs} flop.

He checked to Jaksland, who bet 26,000. Brandstrom then gave his next move approximately two minutes of thought before moving all in. Jaksland snap-called to put the defending champion at risk.

Simon Brandstrom: {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Peter Jaksland: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}

Brandstrom needed help as he only had a double gutshot straight draw to work with, as his king wouldn't help against Jaksland's aces.

The turn brought the {6-Clubs} giving no help to Brandstrom, but the {q-Spades} on the river gave Brandstrom a king-high straight to survive and keep his reign as champion alive.
